Can you imagine what those tomato's would taste like.
Believe it or not one of the largest UPick farms around and you better know how to speak Chinese.
90% of the vehicles in the parking lot are from NY.

My doctor has a Bible in his room. He has a PhD in theology. Thought that was cool.

Love that I can have nice creamy smooth putty because I have my paint shaker.

It started getting hard and crusty so I threw in a little water and put it on the shaker for 20 minutes and it's like it was new out of the container.

Watch Charles Bronson in Mr. Majestyk. All the crop picking excitement you will ever need.

The two we go to here have 4 drive-through lines and 6 drive-through lines. There are 20 Ė 30 cars in each line. They walk to your car with an iPad type thing to take your order. No more than a 10 min wait.

I found out the hard way that SL Winery is not the same as SL Wine Cellars. Just opened a 2013 Artemis at Thanksgiving and it was nice.



They make a nice Chardonnay named Karia, if thatís your bag.

45min wait is crazy busy. with their app, you can place an order and walk in to pick it up or pull curbside and they bring it out.

I have a standing order for chick-fil-a spicy biscuit and a yogurt cup and when I time it right, the guy is walking out with my bag as I'm driving thru the parking lot

Chick Fil A to tame for me.
If I'm going for a spiced chicken sandwich I want to see a good fight in the parking lot or a least a small brawl in line.
That's why Popeye's is my go to place.

Re: Things I Love (2)


Had a fire call last night, mutual aid with a neighboring dept.

Fire started in a small summer kitchen off the back of the house, homeowner woke up to smoke in the house, and got the family out.

Was a Mennonite farm, he had a 1,000 gal milk tank almost full of milk, that was going to be used to make cheese, since the milk plant was shut down for renovations.

He must be a quick thinker, cause he hooked up a big trash pump to that milk tank, and had a 3'' line going when the first fire truck got there.
Definitely saved the rest of the house, he said there was fire coming out of the eaves of the summer kitchen, and pretty much had it knocked down by himself

My folks took my oldest to a UT basketball game last night - my daughter won the hoops/music chairs at half time! She was the youngest by 3 years!
